Used 2009 Subaru Forester in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for 2009 Subaru Forester
I traded my beloved Jeep Wrangler in on this Subaru Forester, and while I miss my Jeep, I am so very satisfied with the Forester. Great pick up, smooth ride, easy to drive, and all kinds of room. The seats are fine, though not exceptional like the rest of the car, and I'm not fond of the "metallic plastic" parts of the interior such as the arm rests on the doors. They look kind of silvery gray and my 86 year old mother says it "matches her hair." That's not necessarily something she ever said about any part of the Jeep. Other reviews I read ragged on the stereo system and/or the loud engine. I have absolutely no issue with either. I just wish all the folks that have Subarus would wave at each other.
Forester aka "rattle trap"
This little SUV is a good runner but underpowered with the 2.5 boxer. The car rattles like you can't believe! It went back to the dealer multiple times and they were not able to resolve all of the rattles. It handles well, just to much of a rattle box for me to keep.
Subara Forester Owner For Life
I absolutely love my forester! It drives so well. It feels really stable in bad weather as well. I definitely think it deserves all the great reviews on its safety. Its the perfect size too. You can also fit tons of things/people/dogs it and be very comfortable. I know some people complain that its noise and I can tell a little difference from my old car but not to a point that it really bothers me. The drivers seat doesn't have much support or adjustment so on long drives my body aches a bit but I'm sure a good foam cushion or some lumbar support would fix that. Overall I can't think of a better compact SUV and will probably buy another Subaru when its time for a new vehicle again.
